Could that hospital trip have been avoided?

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has organized a month-long effort to focus attention on the national problem of people returning to the hospital soon after they are discharged.  Care About Your Care aims to shine a spotlight on how hospitals and communities are working to limit avoidable return trips to the hospital.

As its contribution to the campaign, Consumer Reports is offering consumers free guides to a safe, successful hospital stay.
